MetricStream to Co-Sponsor a Webinar on Aligning GRC Technology with GRC Programs

October 07, 2011 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in Enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that Chris McClean, Senior GRC Analyst at Forrester Research will join Anindo Banerjea, VP of Engineering at MetricStream in a roundtable webinar discussion on ‘Aligning GRC Technology with your GRC Program.’ The discussion will be moderated by Brandon Dunlap, the Managing Director of Research at Brightfly.

About the webinar
Every day, cybercrime attacks grow more advanced and pronounced, affecting some of the world’s most reputed organizations, and causing losses that can run into billions of dollars. Concerned regulatory authorities are increasing their oversight of businesses, and demanding to see compliance with key IT regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA/HITECH.

In response, businesses are stepping up their IT-GRC efforts not just in the area of IT security, but also in availability, infrastructure and project management. Their end goal is to build a stable operating environment that enhances business performance.

To truly realize this goal, IT-GRC needs to be integrated with Enterprise GRC, and, in turn, closely aligned with strategic activities. However, most organizations manage IT-GRC separately from Enterprise GRC. The lack of coordination between the two increases costs, consumes more labor and resources, and lowers efficiency. It also makes it difficult to effectively assess and manage those IT risks, processes and controls that have a significant impact on the business. Moreover, critical strategic decision-making is impacted when IT risks and governance activities cannot be explained in terms of business performance.

To help organizations effectively align IT-GRC with Enterprise GRC and business performance, the webinar will provide insights and best practices from leading technology and GRC experts. Participants will learn how to:

  • Remove the silos of GRC Management and define Risk Measurement Processes
  • Learn how aligning Technology with your GRC program affects the bottom line.
  • Automate and standardize GRC activities with pre-defined workflows and reporting
  • Protect business value through continuous monitoring of both IT and business controls
  • Gain a competitive advantage by managing risk across IT and business processes
